Registered students are required to attend all the workshops. In addition, they will prepare seminar questions of 125 words each on all but one workshop paper and one paper of approximately 3500 words on any theme relevant to law and economics. Evaluation will be based on this written work (80%) and on participation in the workshop 20% (10% contributions to class discussion, 5% performance during on-call day(s); 5% attendance). Note: Students must pass both the paper and the participation component to receive credit for the workshop.
